the team is young. need a little experience to be able to handle ourselves in those tight situations. detroit probably will have nothing to do with us and our battle for the playoffs so giving them a point isnt huge. just glad we got the 2 pts. move on to next game against the B's.

Well, my blowout prediction was coming true. It was just that the Oilers were the ones with all the goals. First shift was great. Problem was, they didn't have many of those the rest of the game.

This team would be SO much better if they practiced or got better at dumping the puck in properly and getting there first. It's a HUGE issue in almost every game I watch. I think it comes more down to effort and wanting the puck. I notice our dmen are far too slow at turning around to retrieve a dump in as well and usually get beat by the opposing forward.

There are too many times the Oilers dump the puck and in and a few things happen:

-The opposing defender usually gets to the puck first and wins the board battle easily
-The opposing defender gets there first and makes one good pass and the puck is out

This is why Detroit owned over 80% of the play this game. Almost every time Detroit dumped it in they had a guy race in and beat our defenders and then cycle the puck in our zone for 30s-over a min at a time.

Getting Stone back in will help. He's tough along the boards.

Is it just me or does 90% of Detroits roster have "Sedin Strength"? Little cleary, average size Datsyuk, etc. These guys are ALL LIKE TANKS. They are so strong ont he puck. Their whole teams looks to be.

They get into the offensive zone and are great at using their body to shield the puck and finding a man open.

Overall, Detroit out muscled and outworked the Oilers, even though I think the Oilers did put in a lot more effort than previous games.

Detroit makes a lot of teams look this silly running around and the Oilers have a lot of injuries, so like the other poster said above....

Take the 2 points and don't ask questions lol.

One last thing. Good God is Strudwick SLOW. Scary Slow.



Phew..

Yeah the Kid Line experiment failed big time.

Gotta say - Smid, So glad you're still with us =D

Couple of good things is the 77 and 37 experiment looks like it's over as well. Quinn really rode Grebs and Smid tonight... 26 minutes for Smid =D

I dont think it's how he plays, it's when the others come back. When Comrie comes back, MacIntyre is out. Pisani comes back, Nilsson will come out, then when Stone comes back...then it gets interesting.

I felt bad for the kid on that 5-2 goal for the Red Wings. I mean... he's right where he needs to be on the ice there. What he said as he went to the bench is exactly what I said.

We lost a value point because the little boys couldn't handle the play of men. They were -9 collectively at -3 each even strengthed. They are the weak link and I'm tired of pointing it out!

My God what a brutal effort. Let's hope this is totally attributable to the flu bug.

Some observations.

The Oilers getting 2 points for this game is probably one of the greatest injustices so far this year. They got about 4 flukey goals, and were completely and utterly outplayed the entire game, start to finish. Thank God Detroit didn't put a goalie in the nets. They should have won this 8-1, if the hockey gods had anything to say about it.


If Grebeshkov and Gilbert are not the softest defencemen in the league, someone please tell me who is. One is a giveaway machine, and the other couldn't check his hat.

Is Theo Peckham really that slow?

Taylor Chorney, you got exposed as the AHL defenceman that you really are tonight.

I hope Alice Hemsky had a good sleep after his two goals. Pathetic.

Worst game I've seen POS play for this team. Brutal in his own zone, and created more turnovers than Sarah Lee.

I swear Pat Quinn will have a heart attack screaming at these useless teats before this season is over.

Again, I hope this can be completely and totally blamed on the flu bug. Then, all is forgiven.

before you post your doom and gloom, think back to the masses predicting the Oilers getting blown out 5-1, 6-2 etc... we won - it wasn't perfect, but with a few rooks in the lineup, short one forward (what did Mac get, 1 shift? 2?) the Oil still pulled it out - hopefully it's a little bit of a wake up call to the young guys.

and for the record, the dude who posted in big black letters, I thought Nilsson had a pretty damn alright game -don't hate just to hate - a lot of players made some errors, Nilsson got in the corners pretty good tonight, imo

We just stopped making plays in the 3rd. It happens often when teams pressure us.

We have no poise back there so when things get shaky, our players just fire it out of the zone. Problem is that is bascially handing it right back to the other team so they can come back in and do the same thing again. Big time snowball effect.

Hemsky/Penner were real good. Horcoff was much better. Smid was pretty good as well.

I liked Grebeshkov/Gilbert a lot better apart.

Unfortunately, the guy has some serious issues with self-esteem and self-confidence. I don't think anything is going to help.

Strudwick and Peckham are god awful. No idea how anyone thinks that guy is our fourth best prospect.

We simply need our good players back. Almost every team in the league would suck if their top two defencement were out.

Defensively Nilsson was the best on the kid line, he saved a goal against Eaves.

Smid was the best Oiler tonight by far.

Hemsky, Penner, AND Horcoff were good.

I'll take two points!

This team was missing:

Visnovsky (5.6, 549 GP), Souray (5.4, 613 GP), Staios (2.7, 839 GP), Pisani (2.5, 362 GP) and Comrie (1.0, 525 GP).

Oh, and the guys that are playing are flu ridden.

We would have been insane to expect more than 0 points tonight.

I don't care how we got here, I'm taking 2 points all the way home tonight...

Smid's play has risen to the point where he carries whichever pairing he's on defensively. He covered for Grebeshkov a number of times tonight.

Grebs was more predictable tonight, but he's still making unforgiveable blind passes which are getting intercepted too often.

Gilbert played a much better game tonight.
